From Fiona Miller, Community Accountability Coordinator , Scottish Police Authority
On 9 April 2020, it was announced that an Independent Advisor Group (IAG) would be set up to review Police Scotland’s use of new temporary police powers to tackle coronavirus, chaired by John Scott QC, the group reports directly to the SPA.
Understanding and listening to the views and experiences of those impacted by use of the powers is central to the work of the IAG, and the Group is committed to seeking to involve the voices of community and grassroots representatives and any groups that may be most impacted or disadvantaged by the use of these temporary powers.
A number of feedback and information gathering routes have been set up to support the work of the Independent Advisory Group.
I would be grateful if you could forward this information to your colleagues and to community networks that you consider would be interested in providing feedback.
